Polyamorous ventriloquy: loiterature as textual cruising

I would like to address the potential of a critical project for the generation of creative work, deploying Ross Chambers’ concept of ‘loiterature’ as a mode of textual cruising, and to consider the kind of polyamorous ventriloquy which this practice can catalyse. While the paper draws on my own recent experience of this dialogue between critical and creative enquiries I hope that it works as an argument for the nurturing space the academy can offer for experimentation and for new creative departures. I also hope it challenges the romance of the ‘creator’ as individual; implicit throughout this paper is the idea of ‘creativity’ as polyamorous receptivity.
